ANNE ROININEN: CAR SHOW

Light art installation of and about cars and cities, 2017

Car Show (2017 – 2021) is made from real cars, and is about cars. 
Our relationship with cars is changing all the time. In terms of ecology and the way we use cities, cars have gone from a symbol of luxury, to objects which divide opinion. Cars now are as linked to air pollution and lung disease as they are to the freedom of the open road. By turning the cars into light sculptures, Roininen seems to be summoning mechanical ghosts. These cars appear abandoned, lost and from another age.
